Dance Imagination Sampler (3-5 years) introduces dance basics and inspires young dancers to express themselves through movement, developing their understanding of the art and technique of dance in an atmosphere of fun and purpose. Using concepts which are familiar to the child, movement is introduced which invites them to apply imagination, energy and coordination. Through creative play and imitation, children strengthen basic motor skills and self esteem by learning what they can do. By exploring dance, music and language, the child’s many facilities of self expression are nurtured. Memorization improves because the elements of dance are identified and used in many interesting ways. Focus on form, technique and composition increases with age and ability within the curriculum. Training young dancers in this in-depth method develops body awareness, agility, rhythm, improvisation skills and creative thinking of a permanent nature, while preparing for the more regimented study of ballet, jazz, modern and other related theater arts. More on our Young Dancers Program.
Pre-Ballet Sampler (5-7 years) The elements of creative movement will be augmented by more coordination and sequence-related exercises; floor formations that teach children spatial awareness; movement exercises that emphasize straight legs and pointed feet, posture, placement, stretches and comportment of classical ballet. Basic ballet concepts such as 1st and 2nd positions, plié and relevé will be introduced. Fun, creative elements such as stories, games and other imaginative activities will keep the pace of the class lively and engaging.
Hip Hop Basics Sampler (6-8 years) is designed to help children develop confidence, muscle strength, coordination, musicality and self-expression in a fun and exciting format. Hip Hop is a fun and upbeat stylized urban class that focuses on personal style and expression. In this class dancers are encouraged to let go and be free while developing their ability to groove to child appropriate pop and hip hop music. More on our Young Dancers Program.
